Thursday Things

Thursday Things is a new weekly post with site news and discoveries around the net.


I received the I Love Your Blog Award from Roshan at Awake & Dreaming. The rules for accepting the award are as follows:

1) Add the logo of your award to your blog.
2) Add a link to the person who awarded it to you.
3) Nominate at least 7 other blogs.
4) Add links to those blogs on your blog.
5) Leave a comment for your nominees on their blogs.

So I bestow this award to some of my favorite subscriptions: (Anti) Social Developement, Evolving Scenes, Mania Ravings, Morgan Howard, Our Best Version, Smile My Day, Wassup Blog, and WD Favour.

Guest Post

I have done my first guest post over at Life as I Know It, an informative and heartfelt blog covering self improvement, poverty, peace promotion, education and the environment. My post is titled Admitting is the First Step, about the first step towards change.

    Hi Kristi – Thanks for the award and the love :-) Last night I wasn’t so sure but I’m definitely going to add it and pass it along this weekend :-)

    I love the Roomba Cat video. My daughter was laughing so hard when she was watching it. (I can entertain her for hours with YouTube cat videos).

    Thanks Kristi for the great honor you have bestowed upon this humbled blogger. Damn, I really wanted to watch the “roomba cat video’ but it is no longer available.

    @Johnny: I haven’t put any of my really dark writing on this blog. I’m thinking about a separate blog with a different theme for those pieces.

    @Ari, Evita, Kim, Jaffer, Sire, and Morgan: I love your blogs, so you are all very welcome! :)

    @Mike: Freaky, but funny. :)

    @Aldhis: Thanks! I was pleasantly surprised.

    @Irtiza: Glad to hear it. I posted my seven things.

    @Madhur: Thanks.

    @Debbie: You’re welcome. With exception to holidays, I plan on doing something similar every Thursday.
